Catch up time

WARNING THIS IS A LONG POST. Wow the weeks are just zooming by I cant believe we are half way through April. I have been a bit busy and forgot to post my news I got a couple of weeks ago.

Adrienne and Pauline from Scrappin' Patch invited me to become a full design team member for them for the next year and I of course accepted. I love Scrappin' Patch awesome shopping with excellent service, great forum and huge amounts of inspiration. I am so excited about being on the team and I have met most of the design team.

Well I went on the Sketchbook retreat and had an awesome time with little sleep, lots of chatting, scrapping and eating!! Here is a few more layouts I can share (of the 16 I did).

This one is a scaplift of a Joeline Peinaar layout that I saw in a magazine and just loved it so I did something I don't often do and scraplifted it


This one is for the North/South Sketch Challenge as the two islands had scrapbooking events at the same time


Paper Pesto also had a challenge which was to use at least two papers on a layout from the paper packs we got on arrival. Here is my layout - I love how it came out.


We did a make and take on Friday with Louise and made this awesome hybrid card - I think I need to add more hybrid stuff to my layouts.


On Saturday Faye's class was a double layout using heaps of photos and the beautiful Marrakech Range from Basic grey - a great layout to use smaller photos.




The second page has a flip page on it.

Then on Saturday afternoon I was in Prima and MM heaven when Rachel Tucker did her class using Prima paintable acteate and MM papers and we did this layout.


and with the left overs we did a mini book - I like those zutter machines!!


and then I was in Taristo heaven when I won a Taristo ribbon kit for completing the layout first ( photo from Rachels blog - thanks Rachel).

I will leave it at that - I hope you all had a great Easter!!
